Lyrical scenes in three acts and seven pictures by Peter I. Tschaikowski in Russian with German and English surtitles
Tatiana, the sensitive daughter of the landowner Larina, falls in love with the detached dandy Eugene Onegin, whom Lensky, the fiancé of her fun-loving sister Olga, introduces to her. At a central point in the opera, the shy Tatiana writes a letter in which she reveals her love to her beloved. But Onegin coolly tells her that he is not cut out for marriage. Bored with the provincial atmosphere, he makes eyes at Olga, arousing the jealousy of his friend Lensky. The quarrel ends in a duel, which Lensky does not survive. Onegin flees from his guilt and discovers too late his feelings for Tatiana.
